The paperless paradigm of the 21st century has not managed to completely do away with printers, and there are a few reasons to believe that they will be part of our lives for at least another decade or so.

The Printer Market & Installing Products in Hesperia

Wall Street analysts are paying close attention to a recent announcement by computer hardware giant HP, which intends to acquire the printing assets of Korean electronics behemoth Samsung for more than a billion dollars. Once the deal is completed, the HP payroll will increase by 6,000 new employees, and many of them will be dedicated to research and development.

It appears as if HP wants to be the absolute market leader in the personal and business printer segment. In Asia, Samsung is a respected name in the copier-printer segment, which features machines that can produce multiple copies very quickly.

Another interesting tidbit about HP is related to the way the company has softened its controversial approach to selling ink cartridges. In September 2016, a letter from the Electronic Frontier Foundation with more than 10,000 signatures was presented to HP in protest of security updates that essentially forced owners of HP printers to only use the company’s expensive inkjet cartridges as replacements.

HP Printer Products to Consider for Hesperia Use

HP has agreed to release new updates that will no longer lock users out of alternative ink cartridge replacements. Along with the purchase of Samsung’s printing business, this is certainly good news for fans of HP products.

If you are in the market for HP printers in Hesperia, there are two models you may want to evaluate:

HP Envy 4520

You can purchase this sleek all-in-one printer for about $100 after rebates. The Envy 4520 does not feature physical buttons; the copying, printing, and scanning functions are operated via a small LCD screen. This printer is slightly larger than others currently in the market; this allows users to load up to 100 sheets of paper. The connectivity options are standard: USB, AirPrint, Google Cloud Print, and Wi-Fi.

HP OfficeJet 4630

If you want a budget-friendly printer solution for your small office, the HP OfficeJet 4630 is an option that will cost you just $50 after the generous rebates. Every office function you need can be handled by this rugged printer, including two-sided printing, auto document feeding and manual faxing. Standard connectivity options include remote printing but no Ethernet connections.
